Mr. Terupt has a way with kids. He teaches personal responsibility and tolerance, and all the students in his class begins to grow and learn... until one snowy afternoon, when tragedy strikes.

This is a story told by many different voices, it's realistic fiction about a group of fifth graders. You are bound to find someone you can identify with here!
